Artist's Description

“See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.” 1 John 3:1
This outburst of wonder introduces the third feature of the believer’s hope in 2:28-3:3. The believer’s hope is strengthened by the fact that God’s love initiated his salvation (Eph. 1:3-6). Christ’s return will unite the believer with the heavenly Father who loves His child with an immeasurable love. John expresses utter astonishment at God’s love for believers in making them His children (Ro. 8:17).
The real aliens in the world are not extra terrestrials, but Christians. Having been born again, given a new nature of heavenly origin, Christians display a nature and lifestyle like their Savior and heavenly Father, a nature totally foreign to the unsaved (1 Co. 2:15,16; 1Pe. 4:3,4). No wonder scripture describes Christians as ‘aliens’, ‘exiles’ and ‘strangers’ (Heb. 11:13; 1Pe. 1:1; 2:11). The Lord was unearthly in origin, and so are those born again. Our true transformed lives have not yet been manifested.
